Gulu is about 320km (seven hours) north of the Ugandan capital, Kampala.

Gulu Uganda MapThe population of Gulu is about 150,000, and is mostly made up of the Acholi people. The Acholi people speak Luo – the local language dialect. There are more than 40 local languages in Uganda, therefore English is the only common language which allows all the country’s inhabitants to communicate to each other.

The equator runs through Uganda, making it a very hot, humid country with wet and dry seasons, rather than four seasons (it is just hot all year round!)

Uganda, situated in East Africa, is land-locked, and borders South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
